. >> lawmakers are expected to introduce a bill occur tailing the national security agencies powers to indiscriminately collect personal information. the u.s.a. freedom act is authored by patrick lay he. >> i did would provide stronger restrictions and require the government to delete information it collects accidentally more aggressively than it does now. the bill has a dozen co sponsors in the senate and 70 in the house. meanwhile, senator dianne feinstein, the democratic head of the senate intelligence committee, who has been a staunch defender of the n.s.a. is among those criticizing the agencies monitoring of world leaders like german chancellor angela merkel. insta statement, she said: the white house says president obama was not aware of just how extensive the n.s.a.'s intelligence gathering was until this summer, but the president insists there will be a complete review of the n.s.a.'s spying policy. >> what we've seen over the last several years is their pass has continued to develop and expand and that's why i'm initiating now a review to make sure that what they're able t
at the national security agency or national security desk, why didn't we try to send somebody from somewhere? what happened? >> hi, chris. i think people need to understand this is a situation where as much as the people on the ground working with the state department in libya knew that the threat was there and requested security, the state department just wasn't prepared to deal with this situation. and by being prepared, you have a list of things that when something goes wrong like this you go down that list and make certain phone calls and notify certain people. and that just wasn't the case. they had numbers from the d.o.d. that had expired. then you run into a situation where these agencies, the cia, the state department, and the military don't necessarily talk to each other and are in communications as much as you'd think. >> you know, as an american that doesn't work for me. the president, the security agency people are sitting in the white house. they're getting an instantaneous report of what's going on there. what weren't they looking at? where was the u.s. cavalry to use an american ima
at the level of the national security agency and the way the protocols are set up at this point, that's sort of where the line of information would stop. there isn't necessarily a reason why they would tell the white house there's no protocol that insists that they do. and in the case of the monitoring the chancellor merkel and some 35 other leaders, nsa hadn't brought it to the white house's attention. >> the dates are significant because the monitoring dates go back to 2002 on angela merkel, which also would explain from the officials quoted here why the president would not be brought into the loop on this. as bizarre as that sounds to some people. >> at what level it sounds a little odd. you could see a situation where a program starts as far back as 2002 and keeps -- nsa is a very large organization with incredibly monitoring surveillance programs and these things kind of have -- unless someone puts a stop to them. >> many are processing what this means to the world and the u.s. reputation as we know european leaders are quite angry over these revelations. i want to play with european pa
security agency is under fire because of revelations by former nsa analyst, edwin snowden. s scongressman james sense en brenner is expected to propose a new law, the freedom act, which would stop dragnet collection of phone calls of american citizens, place stronger restrictions on who is targeted and .a special advocate to the super secret fisa courts to protect privacy rights but director of national intelligence james clapper and general keith alexander told the schmidt the content of phone calls remain secret in a virtual lockbox unless there is a link to possible terrorism and that, they say, is rare. >> there wiat would only be loo when we had reasonable and articulable suspicious that we had connection to a foreign al-qaeda or related terrorist group and look into that box. in 2012, we had 88 such selectors that we could go and look into that. >> that's it. of the billions of records, only 28 yeah. >> at the committee hearing, there was relatively little discussion about allegations the u.s. had spied on america's allies but at the whitehouse, it was still a hot topic. press secre
.s. ambassador i had intimate knowledge of some of the things that the national security agency was doing, so let's at least understand several things. the nsa will vacuum up anything and everything they can get their hands on because no one, no one other than the president and his top national security adviser, can tell them not to do something, so that's point one. point two, the damage that has been done to american economic interests as a result of this revelation is as important as the foreign policy consequences, because what european company will want to use american networking capacity and other types of computer technologies as a result of this. finally, one other thing. i'm really embarrassed for this white house. i feel awfully sorry for the president because this is basically going to undermine the -- our transatlantic alliance for many years to come, just at a time when we're negotiating an iran agreement. where our european allies are so important to us. >> meanwhile there are some republican leaders coming out, republican congressman peter king defending the u.s. spying on world le
problems. when we found mistakes we reported, addressed and corrected them. the national security agency specifically is part of the intelligence community broadly is an honorable institution. the men and women who do this work are honorable people dedicated to conducting their mission lawfully and appalled by any wrongdoing. they, too, are citizens of this nation who care just as much about privacy and constitutional rights as the rest of us. they should be commended for their crucial important work in protecting the people of the country, which has been made all the more difficult by this torrent of unauthorized damaging disclosures. that all said, we in the ic stand ready to work in partnership with you to just surveillance authorities to further protect our privacy and civil liberties. i think there's some principles we already agree on. first we must protect sources, methods, targets, partners, sources, liaisons and relationships. we must do a better job helping american people understand what we do, why we do it and rigorous oversight that helps ensure we do it correctly. third we

. those professionals in the national security agency and elsewhere in the intelligence community are focused on one thing only, keeping americans safe and troops and diplomats abroad safe and keeping our allies safe. we need talent across the board. there's no question these revelations have caused some tensions in our relationships but i think the fundamental fact that the american people need to know is the national security agency is focused on foreign intelligence targets, those individuals and groups out there in the world who have as their primary focus doing harm to the american people, doing harm to our allies and they do a great job every day. >> isn't leadership on that issue then for the president to push off all of these attacks about spying and who we're spying on and whether it's right, if it's so important especially in a post 9/11 world, isn't the strength of leadership saying we spy, you may not like it, that's how it works. we're not going to reveal too much about this. think about it in the next election if you don't like it. the idea reviewing plans the presid
if proven. >> it's really outrageous that the national security agency was looking between the google data centers if that's true. the steps that the organization was willing to do without good judgment to pursue its mission and potentially violate people's privacy is not okay. it's just not okay. so in that sense the snowden revelations have assisted us in understanding that. it's perfectly possible that there are more revelations to come. >> schmidt says that google has registered complaints with the nsa, president obama and members of congress. gentlemen, joe you were saying before there are two camps of people. >> here's what the nsa said. the nsa referred to some of the press articles treatmently that they had misstated facts and mischaraterized the nsa. this is definitive. unless they're lying, the nsa follows all of the laws, regulations and policies and assertions do a grave disservice to the nation, its allies and partners and the money who make up the nsa. >> i was in the antisnowden camp but something i read yesterday in "the new york times" gives me a little bit of pause. they
